Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio says his summer market work is far from over.

Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio says his summer market work is far from over.

Di Canio is dodging questions about what his team is capable of until they make what he sees as the most crucial moves of a summer that has seen him completely transform the Black Cats’ squad.

“Before I can answer questions about where we can finish, let me see if we can bring in the players,” he told The Journal.

“We now have a good group of strikers with different characteristics and I can now make changes. If we have five strikers, plus the young striker (Mikael Mandron) we have good competition for places and desire to prove themselves and take a place in the starting XI.

“That makes me very happy because last year we were struggling up front. Now we are struggling in the middle and full-backs area, so we need others.”
